Sign-up For May 4th Half Marathon Begins Thursday
The city of La Crosse decided to get out of the marathon business this year, but it's working to improve the half-marathon run every May.
Registration for the 13-mile run starts today with the city park department. The marathon and half-marathon were both introduced in 2009 as part of the city Fitness Festival, but coordinator Jessica Robey says La Crosse's odd layout between the river and the bluffs made it hard to host a 26-mile foot race. Besides that, participation in the long race was pretty small.
People signing up now for the half marathon can get in on an early bird entry fee, before the price rises in January.
